Astrom Training has unveiled its comprehensive CBTA compliant CBT course tailored for Dangerous Goods, meticulously crafted for both pilots (category 10) and cabin crew (category 11). This endeavor is the result of a collaborative effort with esteemed subject matter expert Norman MacLeod.

The Astrom Training CBTA Dangerous Goods course stands as a meticulously structured and modular learning experience. Within its framework, detailed lessons have been carefully developed to encompass the following vital topics: a deep dive into the hazards and risks inherently tied to dangerous goods; a comprehensive overview of the intricate regulations that govern these materials; in-depth exploration of crucial facets like marking, labelling, and packaging; equipping participants with the knowledge and skills required for reporting adverse events and conducting proper data collection; in-depth understanding of the precise training requirements demanded in this domain; thorough examination of various hazard classes, enabling learners to distinguish and navigate them effectively; strategies for safely handling dangerous goods to mitigate potential risks; and detailed exploration of special cases that might require distinct approaches and considerations.

This course features role-specific competence development modules. These specialized modules provide targeted guidance on various critical aspects, including: 1) mastery of the NOTOC (Notification to Captain) procedure, a vital protocol for ensuring safety in the context of transporting dangerous goods. 2) Strategies for managing specific risks inherent in scenarios, such as handling passenger baggage containing hazardous materials. 3) Effective response strategies for addressing adverse events both during flight and on the ground.

In addition, the course has strict adherence to the IATA CBTA (Cabin Crew and Pilot Training and Assessment) requirements. This stringent alignment ensures that pilots and cabin crew undergo training that meets the highest industry standards, fostering competence, safety, and excellence.
